When visiting our website and each time a file is accessed, our web server collects login information (such as the browser type, operating system, IP address). It is not possible for us to assign the collected data to a specific natural person. The collected data is used only for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are specific indications of illegal use.
We only store personal data that you have voluntarily provided to us (such as for inquiries, on-line job applications), and only for so long as it is needed to fulfil the purposes for which this data was provided, or a long as prescribed by the requirements of the law.
We will not pass the personal data we collect about you on to third parties without your express consent.
The Group consists of legally independent companies with a uniform range of services and different specialities in each regional and national market.
Within the Group, the protection of personal data is an important corporate principle. This is achieved through training, communication, and a written commitment to data confidentiality and compliance with data protection requirements of the law by all employees and external service providers.
By submitting your application to the Elektro Kreutzpointner Group, you consent that the personal data you provide will be stored, processed and transmitted to the responsible personnel department in compliance with all data protection requirements of the law for internal use in our application procedure and the activities required for this in the area of processing your application. This is also the case if no employment relationship is established.
The data may not and will not be transferred to third parties. This prohibition does not apply to transfer within the Elektro Kreutzpointner Group.
However, we have no influence on the data transfer route or security on the Internet. Please take this into account when deciding to send us information via the Internet.

When you visit one of our websites, information is stored on your computer in the form of a cookie. Cookies are small text files that are sent from a web server to your browser and stored on the hard drive of your computer.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer that allow us to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other states party to the agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to gather more information for the website operator about website usage and internet services.
The IP address that your browser sends as part of the Google Analytics service will not be merged by Google with other data. You can block the storage of cookies through the respective settings on your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

When you visit one of our pages which includes a YouTube video (such as Swyx), a connection to the YouTube server will be established. If you are logged into your YouTube account while accessing such pages, it will be possible for YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour with your YouTube account. You can prevent this, for example, by logging out of your account. YouTube is used for the presentation of product and information videos relating to the Kreutzpointner Group.
